Why I Love This Recipe

This is the only recipe I can do LOL all the others come out like hockeypucks!!

Ingredients You'll Need

1 pkg. yeast
5 cups flour
1 cup shortening
2 cups buttermilk
1 tsp. Salt
3 tsp. Baking powder
1 tsp. Soda
3 tsp. Sugar


Dissolve yeast in 1/3 cup warm water. Mix rest of dry ingredients and cut in shortening. Add yeast mixture and buttermilk. Mix well.

Roll out and cut. (I use a glass) Place on cookie sheet and let rise for about 30 minutes. Bake at 425º for 10-12 minutes.

Dough can be refrigerated for up to three days. If using cold dough, let rise a little longer.

Tips do not over knead makes them tough. Do not twist the glass or cutter it seals the edges & will not let them rise

Questions, Comments & Reviews

I expected more lift from the yeast. I will have to try it in the summer when my kitchen is warmer.

These were awesome Tango! I can't imagine a biscuit that is any lighter and fluffier! Thanks for sharing. :) ~ddpie
